Keith Nichols, easily the most prominent pianist and arranger in the world of early (and middle-period!) jazz makes a welcome return to the Roundhouse, this time bringing with him one of Britain’s very best clarinettists, Trevor Whiting. Keith has a great liking for the Roundhouse piano, which itself is proud to be played by such a wonderful exponent of the keyboard, and when he’s not caressing the keys it probably enjoys his remarkable compering and story-telling skills as much as the audience does. Trevor is the ideal companion, playing mainly clarinet but also whichever of his many saxophones he brings along, and he is just as immersed in and knowledgeable about pre-war jazz as is Keith. Not for nothing is he a first-call reed player for Chris Barber’s Big Band, but he shines even brighter in this duo setting where every nuance counts. These two men work together frequently, and the understanding between them is quite something: try not to miss what is sure to be a stimulating and very musical evening.
